WOW ~ wishing we had a 99 Cent Store around here syl! What a BARGAIN!
When I hit 40 my lifelong LOVE of green peppers sadly, had to come to an end - INDIGESTION FOR HOURS - just misery.
Miss them.

For some reason - the red 'n yellow don't have that affect. I always look for specials on them - going to try to have in the garden this year too.

Today~April 2nd:

Protein Smoothie - minus the LC Yogurt (gosh I need to shop!)

Making the Pizza Quiche - doubling it to freeze some squares to have with salad . . . this Thread has helped me yet again to see that I'm not getting my veggies.

Default Oh, this is great

What a fab thing for me to see today, it being my first morning, by the book. It is so impressive to see what interesting things you all eat - I am sure I will start doing some of your recipes when i get to next month or the month after.

So today I got up and at 7am had a three-egg omelet with a slice of mozzerella cheese melted on the top, a cup of coffee, and......nothing else, but I felt those eggs go into my stomach with a thud, and then spent until now -- its almost 1 for lunch -- feeling totally NOT HUNGRY, and maybe even sort of sick to my stomach...

I am working in the British LIbrary today (I am a Professor of Literature in the University of London), and haven't had a twinge of either hunger or fatigue. In about a half an hour I am going to have a chicken drumstick and my first handful of salad -- lettuce without dressing. Have drunk one litre of water already- partly to cut that queezy feeling in my gut.

I am so thrilled to read your food lists, and to see that it is possible to not eat sweets and live to tell

Good day everyone over there in the USA - you are probably fast or asleep or just getting up for the morning.

Rubyjan

Professor of Lit/London U? WOW! Yes, eggs for breakfast were one of my joys returning to Atkins rubyj - really take the hunger away mid-morning munchies etc . . . glad you're getting your veg in regardless of hunger!
Here's the LC Pizza Recipe again - squares froze so nicely - that will be lunch for me with a fairly plain salad (no cheese -drizzle of olive oil):

DEEP DISH PIZZA QUICHE

4 oz softened cream cheese
4 eggs
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (grated)
1 tbs chives
1/2 tsp Italian or pizza seasoning
2 cups shredded cheese (I use mozzarella/cheddar mix)
1/2 tsp wet garlic or 1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup lowest carb tomato or pizza sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese
Toppings to taste (I use pepperoni, sausage, onion, green pepper, mushrooms, whatever!)

Preheat oven to 375.
Beat together cream cheese and eggs till smooth (I use a blender).
Add cream, parmesean cheese and spices.
Spray 13x9 glass baking dish with PAM.
Put 2 cups of shredded cheese in dish and pour egg mixture over.
Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes.
Remove from oven.
Spread with sauce and then add your toppings.
Cover with mozzarella cheese.
Bake till browning and bubbly (or however you like your 'za!)
Let stand for 5 minutes or so.

Default Now I lay me down to sleep

Well ladies, I am about to go to sleep and I think I have done an atkins-by-the-book induction day! Hooray! I had two drumsticks for lunch as it turns out, and salad handfuls, and tonight I had a lamb steak and a half a red pepper and just now had a few slices of havarti cheese.
Its amazing -- no sugar, no splenda, no sweetness at all -- must be the first day i have gone without in about three years!

After feeling sick from those morning eggs, I have felt better and better as the day has gone on. And now that I am through for the day, I feel even better! I know that the first day is the hardest -- so thanks for all your support...
have a good evening everybody.

Ruby

What am I eating??? EVERYTHING IN SIGHT!!!

I'm having a terrible time this afternoon....I just can't seem to get satisfied. My carb count is fine but I just can't seem to stop thinking about eating and doing some eating. I can't wait for dinner in 2 hours and then the kitchen is CLOSED for the day.

Think I'll go do a meditation for 30 minutes and see if that helps. ugh. I hate days like this.

Kris -- you are doing so much exercise with your 'ocean mat' (what is that, anyway?) that its not surprising you've felt hungry all day today. DO you let yourself have extra vegetables without counting carbs on them (I know that some people do) - if so, vege and butter is so lovely... Ah, but you may be already asleep now....but maybe for breakfast? I am about to have my lunch: salad with chicken and water...
